The Indian cricket team on Sunday had a three-hour long high-intensity training session in the morning with main focus on fielding drills on the second day of the three-day training camp ahead of their Test series against Australia starting next week.
With a pleasant weather prevailing in the city, the Indian players came out at the Chinnaswamy Stadium ground around 9.40 am and went through the rigours of fielding practice before the support staff asked them to break for lunch around 12.40 pm.
As soon as the players arrived at the ground, they went through the customary loosening exercises which set the stage for an arduous fielding session for the next three hours.
The players, young and experienced, showed zeal and energy during the fielding session. They had close-in and boundary catching practice in three separate batches under the charges of coach Duncan Fletcher, India’s fielding coach Trevor Penny and bowling coach Joe Dawes.
The players also had run-out drills. They are expected to undergo another training session later in the day. Yesterday, they had two separate practice sessions which lasted five-and-a-half hours in total.
